Felted Purse

This course is an introduction to wet felting. Experience the process of wet felting using a form (resist) to wrap the felt around. This class involves using the hands to “rub” and “roll” the wool to form a permanent fabric.

Instructions will include the use of tools for preparing the wool, elementary color theory and design. By the end of this class you will have created a purse of your own design using a resist, and will have the knowledge to use the technique for your own projects!


This class will be followed by a 2 day class for sewing a fabric lining with a zippered pocket taught by Malissa Long Wilson.

Class will be held on Wednesday, September 15, 2021 from 5:30 to 8:30 pm.

Masks are required to help keep everyone safe!
